The Song With The Descending Tune

from by Rebecca Turner



I probably shouldn't talk to you. I want to talk to you so bad
that I keep interrupting you. But you will probably never get mad.
Nobody's sweeter. I think I have to hang up on you now.

First you touch your hair and smile. Then I touch my chin and frown.
You actually look ordinary! I can't believe it's almost summer.
We don't need our jackets. And I have never been here like now.

The light in the elevator shocks me. And it's hot, too hot,
not like outside, with the breeze and you.

The song with the descending tune is coming down to meet the little song
with the ascending tune, and when they meet there's sure to be
a great big explosion, and that is when you'll say that you love me.
That is when you'll say that you love me.
That is when you'll say that you love me.
